A zooriffic birthday

The birthday girl and her family

Sammy's friend Lillian turned one yesterday, so we joined her and her parents, her grandmother and her uncles for a fun day at the National Zoo.  We did our best to beat the heat, but by the end of our visit, the heat had thoroughly beaten us.  (Note to self: Do not go to the zoo on day that the heat index is in the low 100s.  It's just not fun.)  I did manage to take a few photos of the handful of animals on exhibit that weren't hiding out in a cool, dark place (they definitely had the right idea).

Lone prairie dog

I can't believe Lillian is a year old--it seems like only yesterday that I was driving up to Frederick to meet her for the very first time.  Just look at the two of them playing in the grass; they're definitely not babies anymore.  Oh, how the time flies!

Great zoo captures but sorry to hear that the heat was really the main event. It's hard to really enjoy a place like the zoo on days like that. 75 degrees is good if you ask me :)

So Sammy isn't scared of the grass anymore? Time sure does fly...
